Extended Learning - After School

EdVenture Time Program

EdVenture Time is a daily after-school session of expanded learning activities for VUSD's TK-6 grade students. It is designed to feel a "little different than 'more school'" and offers students some engaging thematic activities. 

Daily schedule includes a group "gathering time" for snacks, a preview of the day's activity, a story, and a game. At the end of the day, we have a group "wrap-up" with opportunities to share learnings and experiences from the day.

General Information

2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Parents will receive a Parent Square message from the district via e-mail with a Google "Enrollment" form to complete in order to provide essential registration info. After enrolling your children, complete a separate Google "Sign-up" form to request a preferred EdVenture Time session from our offerings for your child.  

Students are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis until full. Overflow students are then put on a waitlist for a possible later offering of the requested session. Session sizes are based on material/kit quantities and staffing availability/logistics.

  • Becoming an Athlete (sports)

  • Music Exploration

  • Outdoor Discovery (hiking, disc golf, history walks)

Future themes can be anything from sports to nature hikes, crocheting to culinary arts, manners to gardening, and local history to geology. 

Transportation is not available. Parents must coordinate transportation to/from the EdVenture Time program.

What Students are Saying About EdVenture Time

quote: I liked making the snowy owl project... and the 'snowball fight'!  My favorite part was crafts, the game, the snack, and when Mr. Loring did a running race with us!

What Parents are Saying About EdVenture Time

quote: This is a great time of "beyond the classroom" learning for my child! We've been wanting something like this for years!  I actually had breathing time for myself after school this week while my kids were at EdVenture time!
